Being someone with the puniest, shortest, sparsely lashes ever, it's very tough finding a comparable mascara to my life-long Lancôme Definicils mascara. This Maybelline item has been around for years, but I needed cheap replacements for my Definicils tubes so I did some online research and tried out this mascara. Not only is it as good as Definincils, for the price of one Lancôme mascara, I can get as many as three of these. So, I bought the regular and waterproof versions, and I've never been so pleased with a drugstore dupe. I've tried every lengthening mascara from Dior to Wet N Wild, but this is my holy grail.
